Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: best transitions

Someone already mentioned St Steve> Eleven

I've got a soft spot from some of those NFA> Stephen reprise transitions, especially the ones uninterrupted by drum solos. 2/4/70? 2/8/70? Awesome. Or for another example of a very different but equally impressive Stephen> NFA transition try 9/30/76. They weave together St Steve and NFA with an extended bit of sweet jamming that produces a fired-up version of NFA.

Oh, and I feel like I just mentioned this somewhere else, but one of the best transition segments ever, imo - Playin> Shakedown> World To Give> Playin, 11/20/78

And another obvious one - 6/24/70 - NFA> Easy Wind

A final edit to mention this little gem - St Stephen> It's a Sin> St Stephen, 4/23/69
